One Eye took us out. Mileage around 3.4


  • First order of business: A few of us who overlapped DMZ this past Monday were relieved that the AO seemingly survived Kirk’s sustained, and unprovoked, CBRN attack. As a precaution, it was prudent to go opposite of the DMZ workout path today…..
  • Welcome back to Maize who I believe used to be Metro pax (before my time) and has been a stalwart in Raleigh for years now. Credited with Chappy’s EH
  • I suspect we’ll have more G-spot visitors as Southpark hotels continue to proliferate
  • Chappy took the trouble to remind the pax that, after running downhill to open the workout, we would have to run uphill to finish the workout. Thanks, Chappy
  • Tardy and Chalet @6:30 pace looks like a warmup jog
  • Good lord, the complaining about the bear crawl
  • Great to have Tantrum and Chico back with us, and great to see Cooter, Big Willie, and Jamboree out week in week out #Consistency
  • Boomer prefers “Mookie Blaylocks” to “Bobby Hurleys” – I’m completely amphibious in the matter
  • One Eye and Silent Bob enjoyed every minute of my “Southpark trilogy” -DMZ, Casbash, Gov Qs in 9 days
  • Film is back, but when will he post close to home?
